A Patch of Blue is a 1965 American drama film directed by Guy Green and produced by Green and Pandro S. Berman, starring Sidney Poitier, Elizabeth Hartman and Shelley Winters.


Plot[edit | edit source]

When Selina D'Arcey (Elizabeth Hartman), a blind young white woman, befriends Gordon Ralfe (Sidney Poitier), a black office worker, their budding relationship eventually leads to romance. However, once Selina's insensitive and abusive mother, Rose-Ann (Shelley Winters), finds out about Gordon, she becomes determined to keep the couple apart.

With its stirring story of interracial love, this thoughtful film fittingly reflects the civil rights movement of the era.
